Two Thumbs Way Up!

I'm not one for audible books as all too many sound almost corny. This narration however was very well done! Pavi Proczko delivered a fantastic rendition of a great book. The narration was smooth and flowed well. While he did attempt various voices, he succeeded where​ most fail. I would highly recommend this reading to someone interested in Rachel E. Carter's Black Mage series!
